  1. CUP and Disc usage stuck at 100%


    My CPU usage and Disk Usage stuck at 100% most of the time. I do not have much apps opened. I have i5 processor and 8 GB RAM. Already tried stopping search and superfetch from command prompt. It's not a permanent solution. Can anyone suggest please?

    :)

  2. Disc Usage at 100%

    Hi Andre,

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    I started going through your list of suggestions.

    I have switched off all background apps. I was horrified to see so many.

    I then disabled windows update.

    At that stage I thought I would check out disc usage on task manager.

    Disc activity had gone down dramatically and in the performance tag activity was very low, it spiked from time to time if I did something on the PC but the speed on all activity was back to normal.

    I thought I would leave things as they were and see if things stayed the same.

    No problems at all until this afternoon I was trying to look at a file via windows explorer and got the message "not responding". A quick look at task manager and disc activity is 100% again. Everything slows down. I close down some screens and the desk
    top turns black.

    The only way I can get a display up again is "alt" + "tab". The task bar has disappeared. I decided to reboot but the only way I can do that is with the on'/off switch.

    The PC reboots. I check that all the apps are still switched off and windows update is still disabled, Disc activity is still 100%.

    As I type this disc activity has suddenly dropped. it keeps spiking to 100% but then reverts back to about 12%.

    Is this normal or is there something else I should do.

    Back to 100% now. How do I find out what is actually happening, what activity is the disc doing?

    I am confused.

    Any suggestions?

  4. CUP and Disc usage stuck at 100%

    why is win 10 spiking my disc usage to 100%

    I am having the same issue. My hard drive goes to 100% and completely freezes the computer. I tried the steps above and they did not fix the problem. I notice that the disc usage spikes to 100% whenever I open File Explorer. What can I do to fix this
    problem?
